Having worked with Frasers Hospitality many times in the past Distinction Group were very excited to be awarded this new development after Fraser’s acquisition of Malmaison and Hotel Du Vin brands. Distinction Group was tasked with manufacturing all of the casegoods and upholstery for the bedrooms of this mid-sized boutique hotel. The design to make to included luxurious dark woods and tactile fabrics and fittings punctuated with gold accents, representing an exciting challenge.
From Concept to Samples
Hotel Du Vin engaged Distinction early on in the process, once the final interior design had been signed off. After this Distinction spent time producing shop drawings of all of the products and providing matched finish samples. During the process Distinction carefully engineered each product to ensure its suitability for the contract market and made sure to consult with the client to ensure that they were involved in the process from start to finish. Once finishes and drawings had been signed off Distinction manufactured pre-production samples.
The Finished Items
Though the Frasers team was offered an all expenses paid trip to Asia to inspect the pre-production samples prior to bulk manufacturing it was deemed unnecessary due to our track record with the client of delivering continually high-quality products to their developments. Distinction shipped all items to arrive perfectly within the project programme and they were all installed by our highly skilled installation team. The completed hotel has enjoyed significant success, rising to 10th out of 30 hotels within Stratford Upon Avon only months after opening.
